Criminal Justice

Students receiving a baccalaureate degree in criminal justice will:

  • understand each of the three main components of the criminal justice system and their interrelationships
  • be able to evaluate critically both current and future crime control policy proposals and criminal justice research,
  • and understand the complexity of the crime phenomenon and its relationship to individual, social, and cultural factors.

This major includes study in law enforcement, courts and corrections individually and as components of a system, plus work in theories of crime causation, and crime control policy.


Students should expect reading, writing, and critical thinking skills to be rigorously applied and developed throughout the degree program.
